14.1

Bravo to Pomersbach, no run, beats him on the cut, angling this across him

14.2

Bravo to Pomersbach, FOUR, Muscle! Charges at Bravo and murders this short ball wide of long-on, who didn't have too much to move but couldn't. This went just too fast

14.3

Bravo to Pomersbach, FOUR, Dropped? Not really, Dhoni is standing up, and this is a healthy enough edge for Pomersbach. Streaky but four

14.4

Bravo to Pomersbach, SIX, Fat flat six, one of the flattest you'll see. Pulled away from rib high, and goes over midwicket, into the boundary boards

Royal Challengers Bangalore 125/3   LA Pomersbach 28* (15b 2x4 2x6)

16.1

Bollinger to Pomersbach, no run, walks at him, digs out a yorker, and Bollinger dives to his right to prevent the single

16.2

Bollinger to Pomersbach, 1 run, nearly does it all by himself. Superb stuff from Doug. First of all a big short ball, no room at all, Luke gets a limp top edge, and Doug runs towards short cover, and makes a one-handed catch, but as he makes the fall, the ball bounces out on impact

16.4

Bollinger to Pomersbach, OUT, Timber! Pomersbach had the right idea. This was a length ball, he stood tall, and looked to bosh it over midwicket. However, he swung down the wrong line, and the off stump is out of the ground

LA Pomersbach b Bollinger 29 (18b 2x4 2x6) SR: 161.11

Royal Challengers Bangalore 133/4   LA Pomersbach 29 (18b 2x4 2x6)
